Sandy – At 6 AM, bags and people left the boat at Santa Cruz, ultimately for the flight to Quito. At the dock, we spied our goofy bus named First Class, and took our seats. On board all 15 of us were headed home and Samuel was headed for a week off. We needed to repeat the first day’s journey in reverse, but first went on a worthwhile side trip to the highlands area. Through this area, the giant land tortoises travel, so we hoped to see some. We were certainly off the beaten track in a very lush area, and when we walked through a damp meadow we found four tortoises. It was great to see them! Later, a short walk revealed a lava tunnel about 10 feet high. We headed back on the bus and back on the ferry, to another bus that took us to the Baltra Airport. Samuel gathered our documents and ran interference for us. We offered sincere thanks and heartfelt good-byes. Finally, in Quito, we were on our own to return to the Hotel Eugenia. We went to La Ronda for a fine dinner of Corvina (sea bass) and Ecuadorian entertainment.
